Effects of indole-3-carbinol
on lung tumorgenesis and DNA methylation in mice.
Green vegetables have a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol
that appears to inhibit estrogen's power to promote the growth of breast cancer cells.
, a chemical that enhances DNA repair and acts as an estrogen antagonist, slowing the growth of cancer cells.
And the veg contains indole-3-carbinol
, a natural compound thought to boost fertility.
Change the course: Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, mustard greens, brussel sprouts and collards) contain a chemical called indole-3-carbinol
(I3C) that is converted in the body to di-indolemethane (DIM).
Veggie fans can already point to some cancer-fighting properties of DIM, a chemical produced from the compound indole-3-carbinol
when Brassica vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage and kale are chewed and digested.
and 3'3-diindolylmethane induce apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells.
and 3,3'-diindolylmethane induce apoptosis in human prostate cancer cells.
The research, funded by the National Cancer Institute, looked at the role played by a key phytochemical known as Indole-3-carbinol
, also called I3C or simply carbinol.
